You meant "breathe". Other than that, it strikes me as an example of a perfectly correct sentence that does not say what the writer thinks it does. It sounds inadvertently poetical and abstruse.

I am not a teacher.

You want some word other than trail​ there, Tufguy. Fix the verb and change that word and you can have a good sentence.

That's OK.

Thanks for writing simpler sentences, Tufguy.

In what context would you use that sentence, tufguy?

You really don't need the "in". Breathing includes inhaling and exhaling. However, it's acceptable as it is.

I can't guess what the phrase trail of pollution is supposed to mean.

I suggest that the intent is "no trace of pollution".
